In part one of ‘Signs That You May Need NYC Water Main Repair‘, we discussed unexplained sounds, water pooling in your yard, and discolored water. This time, in part two, we will discuss standing water and decreased water pressure. The water main is the pipe that supplies your entire home with water, and is connected to the City water main itself. Thusly, when this pipe becomes damaged, it can mean trouble. It is therefore very important that you are aware of the signs that can indicate that you may be in need of a NYC water main repair, and that you can then address the problem before it results in more serious issues. Here are a few of the signs you can look out for in your home that can indicate the need for water main repair.
Pools of standing water in your yard can be one of the easiest signs of water main damage for homeowners to detect. When a leak or a rupture occurs in your mater main, water will seep up through the soil, which will result in these pools forming in your yard. If you notice such standing water occurring in your yard for no apparent reason, then you may have cause for concern, as it is likely that your water main or house sewer needs repair. A professional plumber is best to call to determine which of your services (if any) are damaged or leaking. Performing unnecessary excavation work, or repairing the wrong plumbing line, can be very costly

While the issue could occur in a number of places, if the water pressure problem appears consistent throughout your home, then it is likely that you have a blockage or a leak in your water main and should contract a professional water main contractor for service.
